    Disaster and Epidemic Response

    Anywhere there is a large gathering of people, respiratory infections can be acquired due to exposure to airborne pathogenic microorganisms. To help prevent the spread of diseases the Center for Disease Control (CDC) recommends that potential problem areas be isolated and the air purified by portable, HEPA air filtration equipment. OmniAire and OmniAire PAC portable HEPA air filtration machines provide a clean air supply necessary to protect the public in gathering areas such as schools, emergency shelters or temporary healthcare facilities. To comply with CDC guidelines to prevent the spread of disease and contamination of sensitive areas, OmniAire HEPA air filtration machines are commonly used to: -Create a negative air pressure in isolation containment -Supply purified air for required air changes (ACH) -Sanitize airflow in operating and patient’s rooms -Purify air in waiting rooms and public areas -Prevent contamination in compounding pharmacies

  • Oil Mist and VOC Collection

    Oil Mist is Unbreathable. Oil based cutting fluids are often used in CNC milling, machining and metalworking. During production, these processes can produce a mist that can threaten sensitive electronic circuitry and presents serious physical risks to employees (accidents from slipping, breathing hazards).? What are the risks in a workshop with oil mist? Exposure to oil mist for a prolonged period of time can cause a number of health issues. Dermatitis Eye, nose and throat irritation Damage to the respiratory system Bronchitis Bronchial asthma Chronic cough Slip hazards (falling, dropping of tools/materials)? How can you protect yourself?? Mist collectors are effective at capturing and filtering harmful oil mist pollution. They can either be installed on individual machines or to a central location. Having the correct oil mist filtration equipment installed will protect your employees from unnecessary health risks. In addition to this, it will also help to protect your business from long term liability and healthcare costs related to workplace air contamination.?

  • Soldering Fume Extraction

    Soldering fumes are Unbreathable. Soldering enables the joining of metal parts by melting a filler metal to attach wires and other metallic components. The fumes generated from melting solder especially solder containing Lead or Tin present are dangerous and require local ventilation to remove harmful smoke from the work area. Soldering application need to be properly ventilated to prevent toxic fumes from reaching the worker`s breathing zone. There are a number of different industries such as the electronics assembly industry and electronics repair comapnies who must deal with the hazards of solder smoke. Fumes created by automated PCB soldering including wave soldering machines, handheld soldering irons, torch brazing and furnance brazing are often ignored because of the small volume of smoke generated. However, these applications still require careful consideration as dangerous fumes can impair employee’s respiratory tracts depending on the filler metals used. Because manual soldering applications require working with tiny components, workers end up positioning their heads right above toxic rosin or lead solder fumes with a direct exposure into their throat, nasal passages and lungs, and as a result, they can experience respiratory complications. Rosin irritation can cause various side effects and the inhalation of lead fumes is carcinogenic. As lead oxide smoke collects in your lungs, it can be transferred into your bloodstream. Diversitech recommends installing soldering fume extraction equipment to prevent the inhalation of dangerous fumes. These ventilation units will not only protect each person working at a soldering station when installed and positioned correctly, but they will also prevent fumes from contaminating other worker’s lungs.?
